One the usual squatty kind of character on Christmas cards but another very slender robin who stands tall and elegant, really lngthening the body (even on cold days) and it is very red breast. I thought perhaps it might have been a winter visitor as I haven't seem any for a while? Would this be right and if so from where? Thanks xx
Great to notice this, the Robin standing upright is probably a male trying either to impress a female or threaten another male, Robins are extreemly territorial and I think showing off the red breast is the initial movement for either of the above.

The two pictures show the stance...

Have you seen this ...General Bird & Wildife Talk.. Rowena has answered your question..
